Bistro Jeanty tomato soup is probably by far the best tomato soup we've ever had. On one of our first trips to Napa, locals recommended Bistro Jeanty in Yountville. It's a cute French bistro where you can get $1 oysters during the week, Coq-au-Vin, or the famous Cream of Tomato Soup in Puff Pastry.
We've made this soup many times on chilly or rainy nights, and over time we've given it our own spin. We've lightened it up a bit (the original recipe has tons of cream) and sometimes we mix it up and serve it plain, with grilled cheese, or with puff pastry croutons.
